Quote of the Day

From commenter Gregory Morris:

I always felt O/Us were better for accuracy sports, whereas SxS shotguns were better for scaring the boyfriends of teenage daughters.

How true.  I don’t have any teenage daughters yet, so maybe I should go for the over-under eh?

  1. Nor do I… but I always imagined myself cleaning one while giving him the “I’m not afraid to go back to jail” talk.
    But yeah, I’m a huge O/U fan. I find I can acquire and track my target a lot faster with one.

    SxS? Pfft. Pump is better for that job.

    Speaking from personal experience Joseph? :)

    Haha, no. But an 870 with black plastic furniture just seems more like the right way to freak a guy out. It’s scarier, and in that situation, the more fear caused, the better.

    There’s nothing in the world quite like the sound of the slide on a pump action shotgun, that’s for sure.

    Good point. I was kinda thinking short barreled 10ga SxS though… not scary in the “make Sarah Brady pee her pants” sense (that’s what a Saiga is for) so much as a “Jeez, that sure is a big honkin’ gun.” Probably would be an old, beat up gun with big exposed hammers. No need to pump it… just stroke it with a cleaning cloth while having that little “chat”. Wouldn’t hurt having a pump hanging on the wall beside .30-06 and crossbow.

    I think I’d fear anyone with a single shot 10 gauge, let alone a double.
